Beginner - Website Structure & Silos



New Member
Greetings All!

Wow, I haven't used a forum for ages so you know I'm really keen on my search for knowledge!

Firstly, I'm glad to join a forum again and I look forward to contributing where I can and learning.

The Problem - I'm really struggling on how to structure my new website for long term SEO and internal link building.

To give you some details:
It's mainly going to be a blog about Shopify where I'll write guides on strategies to use for different aspects but I also want some money pages in there such as "Best Tools for X" and Reviews.

I've attempted to create 2 mock ups which are below but I can't decide which would be the most beneficial for long term SEO.
In my head I'm thinking "Should reviews be a separate silo or be under best tools which I can then link to?".The same goes for guides!

If you could help I would be very grateful - perhaps I'm overthinking this too much?

Many Thanks In Advance

Edit: Need to post 20 times before I could post image! I'll try mock it here:

Sitemap 1
Reviews/Tools/Guides/Blog/About - Main Pages

Subpages For Tools "Best Shopify App" / "Best Shopify Dropshipper" / Etc

Subpages For Reviews "App1 review" / "app2 review"/etc

Subpages For Guides "How to sell on Shopify" / Advertising on shopify/ etc

Sitemap 2
Tools / Get Started / Blog / About Me

Subpage For Tools "List Of Resources" > Subpage "Reviews"

Subpage For Get Started "Page with list of all guides relating to Shopify" > Subpages with these guides

I hope that helps and I will answer any questions if I can :)
